Product Description

In Dirty God, Johnnie Moore does more than explain grace. Through powerful and personal examples he helps you understand grace. Looking at Jesus, the author of grace, Moore explores how He stepped into the messiness of life with people. He climbed down to meet us, because we were unable to meet Him. Discover how Jesus fulfilled His mission of making our dirty world clean, by getting dirty, taking on our earthiness and getting in the trenches of our sin, so we could be free.

Publisher's Description

In Dirty God: Jesus in the Trenches, Johnnie Moore draws on both Scripture and his extensive experience with other cultures and religions to show how the God of the Bible is unique in his willingness to be near us in all of our messiness. Moore outlines the central importance of the doctrine of grace while introducing readers to a humble and human Jesus who reaches out to us at our worst and pulls us up to our best.

Grace, Moore argues, is something that is both gotten and given, and the two-part structure of the book allows readers to explore both of these dynamics. By offering hope rather than condemnation and showing the practical applications of grace in today’s world, Dirty God will appeal to both the committed Christian and the spiritual seeker looking for a more authentic faith. Challenging and engaging, Dirty God is sure to establish Johnnie Moore as an emerging voice for Millennial and Gen-X evangelicals for years to come.

    "Jesus didn't just send a message to man through yet another prophet. Instead, he dropped a staircase from heaven so that he can walk with us, touch us, talk to us, feel like we feel, hurt as we hurt, struggle as we struggle, and eventually help us get to where we ought to be - in the presence of God again." ~ Johnnie Moore

    Dirty God, by Johnnie Moore, strives to introduce its readers to the human side of Jesus. No longer just a holy man to be viewed and worshipped from a distance, Jesus becomes the man of the people... someone who walked the walk, got down in the trenches, and got his hands dirty. A man who mingled and loved and befriended the lowest members of society, and a man who modeled exactly the sort of behavior he expected from us as his followers.

    With a casual and conversational style, Moore talks to us about the meaning of grace, in a way that I don't think I've ever seen before. He strips down the gospel to its core, and reminds us of its simple and profound truth: Jesus was a man who brought grace for His people, who wants us to let go of our own hindrances, pick up our own crosses, and follow him... no matter where He may lead.

    I really enjoyed this book, and found its message both relatable and inspiring. While the biblical information it contained was not exactly anything new, it was presented in a fresh and unique way, making it perfect to reach new and seeking believers, or just those who are feeling stagnant in their faith. Dirty God takes you beyond mere Christianity, into what it really means to follow Christ.

    In Johnnie Moore's book, "Dirty God", he presents a refreshing view of the life of Christ and those he spent His time with. Through various stories and examples, the author portrays an inspiration view of how Jesus was not afraid to reach out to those who were neglected by most. Johnnie Moore desires to show how Jesus was not the untarnished, clean and upright man that many people think of. He got down and got dirty. Moore emphasises that Jesus was neither afraid to stretch the status quo, nor to challenge those claiming to be righteous.

    After reading through Dirty God, I was refreshed at reading practical view of grace and the relational aspect of Christ. As I read, the author kept me engaged using an interactive writing style and various fetching stories. Moore involves the reader in the story, not concerning itself with the past, but focusing on the reader as being acceptable. Yet, it must be said that though this is reader friendly, it lacks a little more of an educational perspective. Being a little more versed in biblical truth, I enjoy a more in depth look at meanings and such. However, for the average reader this comes much recommended.

    Grace Made Understandable, Useful, and Possible

    I read Johnnie Moore's Dirty God in one sitting, which is incredible since I am in school, working part time, and juggling many responsibilities. While this book is packed with captivating stories, it stands out by clearly explaining one of the most often heard phrases in Christianity: grace. Johnnie is just the sort of guide to lead readers in the cause and need for grace by using humor, powerful writing, and experience. Profoundly important, Dirty God is perfect for the person who has forgotten, or never knew, the amplitude of grace.

    This book was a great reminder of what the foundation of our faith is about. The inability to earn the favor of the God of the Bible is one of the most significant differences between Christianity and every other world religion. The ability to receive and give grace is a life-long journey that cannot be understated, and this book gives many historical, experiential/personal, and account from literature of grace and its tremendous importance in the daily life of a Christian.
